I'd say yes - I develop software under WSL that builds & runs under both Windows and Linux. It means I can build for both platforms from the same build script and don't need VMs or dedicated build machines.

And I get to use bash rather than CMD or PowerShell, so win-win-win!
Java, Basic, who cares - it's all a bunch of tree-hugging hippy cr*p
